How to Use a Saliva Ovulation Predictor Kit

Saliva Ovulation Predictors (Saliva Fertility Tests)

When a woman is about to ovulate, her saliva begins to form a distinct fern-like pattern due to an increase in the level of salt and estrogen. This visible ferning pattern begins to appear around 3 to 4 days prior to ovulation. Ovulation microscopes – or saliva fertility tests – allow you to predict ovulation by viewing the changes in the make up of your saliva prior to ovulation.

With the saliva-based ovulation fertility tests, just add a drop of saliva to the lens and let the sample dry. In five minutes, view the sample through the microscope. Note for new users: Remember that you need to press the LED light button and focus by turning the eyepiece of the microscope. If you are ovulating – or about to ovulate – a ferning, crystal-like pattern can be identified when examined under the power of the microscope, helping you predict fertile or infertile times in your cycle.

Compact and easy to use, ovulation microscopes are reusable and allow women to see a unique pattern in their saliva called “ferning” (due to the fact that the crystal patterns look like ferns leaves). Based on the increase or decrease of the hormone estrogen, this ferning pattern looks like frost on a windowpane (see image). This pattern develops in saliva around the time of ovulation. A woman simply places a drop of saliva onto the microscope lens, allows it to dry, and reads the result.

Kathleen Fry, M.D., president of the American Holistic Medical Association states: “This new and exciting system works.” And Christiane Northrup, M.D., gynecologist and the author of the best-selling book “Women’s Wisdom, Women’s Bodies,” reports, “This simple and empowering tool allows women to learn about and take charge of their own fertility. I recommend it highly.”

Questions and Answers about the Ovulation Microscope

How do Ovulation Microscopes work?
Ovulation microscopes detect hormone changes that occur prior to and during ovulation. As estrogen increases, “ferning” or crystal patterns can be viewed in dried samples of saliva (seen through the saliva fertility test). These patterns will indicate that ovulation is about to take place – or taking place. The duration of your most fertile time lasts from several days before ovulation to 24 or so hours after ovulation.

When do I begin testing with the Saliva Ovulation Predictor?
It is recommended to use the saliva ovulation test on a daily basis and record results on your fertility chart. Ovulite includes a Saliva Ovulation Tester Card for monitoring results and determining fertility patterns.

When and how do I test for ovulation?
Test first thing in the morning – but never after eating, drinking, or brushing your teeth. These activities may interfere with results.

Are Saliva Fertility Tests accurate?
When instructions are followed, ovulation microscopes are 98% accurate for predicting ovulation.

Can Ovulation Microscopes be used as a contraceptive device?
